Help! 2000 Yamaha 9.9 won't pee while running
Hey guys...I'm new to outboards. I recently picked up a used 2000 Yamaha 9.9 HT. When I connect the hose to the flush connection I get a nice stream of water out the pee port. When I put the engine in the water for the first time and started her up, nothing came out the port. I checked the intakes on the lower unit and theyre clear and when I run the motor on the hard hooked to the flush I get a solid flow out the lower end exhaust.
I talked with someone at a local retail store and he suggested that the thermostat might be between the pee port and the water pump, so if the thermostat was closed then I wouldn't see a discharge until the block heated up enough to open the thermostat. I read elseware that I should see a steady stream of water at all times. Im at a loss...does anyone have any ideas before I break open the lower end to check out the impeller?
I have a T9.9 EXRY...2000 two-cylinder 9.9 fourstroke, high thrust with remote and electric start.
